    Hi, I've made a 5.1 installation but it's not good. As you can see in this picture, the 5 speakers are in front of me, so I don't have the "immersion" sensation when watching a good movie. I've tried to sit in the middle of the square (in order to have 2 speakers behind me) and it was a...

    Hi - I'm hoping some expert(s) can help me. I have a Panasonic SC-BT200 Blu Ray Home Theatre system which plays 5.1 discs great.

    Hi, I am trying to figure out where to mount my 5.1 surround speakers. I think mount on the side walls would be best, but my rear right would be far away from the listener due to the shape of the room. See the attached image. Is this distance a problem? My speakers are 2x Tannoy M3s at the...

    So the title pretty much says it. I am putting together my first home theater surround sound. My room is 30x12x32. I have an "L" shaped couch in one corner of the room (see photos) which I intend to place a 5.1 around (using towers to support the rear satellites on opposite ends of the couch)...

    I need some help picking out a system that will be used about equally for movies, music, and gaming. I'd rather stay away from towers as they take up a lot of space. The room will be about 13' x 15' that extends into the kitchen. I've been keeping my eye on the Def Tech Procinema 800 for...
